Getting Closer To Build

Town bike. I finally decided on the cream with dark red head-tube and seat-tube panel.  I have all the components pulled together except the rear rack and porteur bars, which are in transit from Velo Orange. In actual practice hopefully the front wheel will be round, etc, etc.

what stem will you use?

just asking because I thought you might wait to see how the VO stems turn out . . .

I have a Nitto Pearl stem, longish so I can grab the front of the bar and stretch out a little. The brakes are guidonnets which will allow braking from either the front or rear postion. The shifter will be a Dura-Ace bar end. ;-)
